Wood Fired Pizza Ovens for Your Favorite Backyard Party Host
If there's someone on your Christmas (or any gift) list who loves backyard BBQ's, cookouts, cooking, pizza or smoked meats a wood-fired pizza oven might just be the ticket to making them the King (or Queen) of this summer's backyard parties!
In our house, we've started dreaming about owning and operating a small town brewery and pizzeria and are increasingly convinced that a wood-fired pizza would be the perfect accompaniment to locally brewed beers in a small Wyoming town.
So whether your looking for a great gift for the backyard entertaining enthusiast or the entrepreneurial micro-brew minded member of your family, a wood-fired pizza oven just may be the very best choice! I know that I would just about die of happiness if I found one of these wrapped up in a large bow for Christmas, a birthday or any ole-day as a motivation to get to making some Pizza Crust and dreaming up the perfect toppings for some summer fun and fabulous dining opportunities from your very own home!
King or Queen Debate
When it comes to backyard parties, are they ruled by a King or a Queen?
When it comes to grilling, Kings trump Queens!

While we've yet to have the luxury of throwing one of these pies into a wood-fired pizza ovens, using our pizza stone and imagination we've come up with some exciting flavor combinations such as the French-Philly pictured above which combines the joys of a French Dip and a Philly Cheese-steak and is even dipped in au jus!
Other successful pizza pies out of our kitchen have been the fall-inspired Roasted Squash and Caramelized Onion Pizza as well as classic Supreme Pizza with home-made pizza sauce that truly brought the whole pie to a whole new level!
However you top it, it's sure to be delicious!
